Hi guys, I was wondering if someone could help me out..I am interested in determining the direction (greater than or less than expected) of the NFP, not 'predicting' a specific number...How useful is the ADP at predicting the NFP?..What other economic indicators should I look out for?..someone told me to look at the US 10 Year yield curve, how is this of use?...Thanks
